  • Description

    PRESIDENT GUISEPPE SARAGAT OF ITALY TODAY (MONDAY) BEGAN A ROUND OF CONSULTATIONS ON THE APPOINTMENT OF A PRIME MINISTER DESIGNATE TO HEAD ITALY'S NEXT GOVERNMENT.

    IN THE NEXT FOUR DAYS THE PRESIDENT WILL SEE MORE THAN 30 LEADING ITALIAN POLITICIANS, INCLUDING FORMER PRESIDENTS AND PRIME MINISTERS TO DISCUSS WHO WOULD BE BEST SUITED TO HEAD ITALY'S 31ST GOVERNMENT SINCE WORLD WAR TWO.

    AMONG HIS FIRST VISITORS WERE FORMER PRESIDENT GIOVANNI GRONCHI AND SIGNOR ALESSANDRO PERTINI, PRESIDENT OF THE CHAMBER OF DEPUTIES.

    AFTER HIS MEETING WITH THE PRESIDENT, SIGNOR GRONCHI SAID:
    "THE SITUATION IS VERY SERIOUS AND IT IS TO BE HOPED FOR OUR COUNTRY THAT EVERYBODY FEELS THE FULL WEIGHT OF HIS RESPONSIBILITY."
    MOST POLITICAL OBSERVERS BELIEVE THAT A NEW CENTRE-LEFT FOUR-PARTY COALITION, WITH CHRISTIAN DEMOCRAT CARETAKER PRIME MINISTER MARIANO RUMOR AT ITS HEAD, WILL BE THE OUTCOME OF THE CRISIS.

    SIGNOR RUMOR HANDED IN HIS MINORITY GOVERNMENT'S RESIGNATION ON SATURDAY AFTER LEADERS OF THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRAT, SOCIALIST, SOCIAL DEMOCRAT AND REPUBLICAN PARTIES HAD AGREED THAT THE TIME WAS RIPE FOR RENEWING THE COALITION WHICH FELL LAST JULY BECAUSE OF A SOCIALIST SPLIT.
